Bill Clinton being back in the headlines is never a good thing.
His affair with Monica Lewinsky is once again news.
That’s because she said the seven words that were bad news for the former President.
In the wake of the #MeToo scandal that swept Hollywood, media and Washington, Monica Lewinsky authored an essay in Vanity Fair describing how her relationship with Bill Clinton fit into the movement.
She shocked Americans when she said “it constituted a gross abuse of power.
“She said she has drawn strength, however, from the #MeToo movement which has revealed sexual abuse by powerful men in show business, politics and the media.
Lewinsky said she had received a message recently from “one of the brave women leading the #MeToo movement” saying “I’m so sorry you were so alone.”
“Those seven words undid me,” Lewinsky wrote. “They landed in a way that cracked me open and brought me to tears.”
“That I had made mistakes, on that we can all agree,” she said. “But swimming in that sea of Aloneness was terrifying.”
Lewinsky said there are “many more women and men whose voices and stories need to be heard before mine.
“There are even some people who feel my White House experiences don’t have a place in this movement, as what transpired between Bill Clinton and myself was not sexual assault, although we now recognize that it constituted a gross abuse of power,” she said.”
Democrats are being forced to come to grips with the fact that they covered up for Bill Clinton being accused of rape, sexual assault and sexual harassment.
This has led some Democrats to say Clinton is not welcome on the campaign trail this fall.
After Lewinsky accused him of an abuse of power those calls will only grow louder.
